Innovators with a prestigious history and significant footprint

Our team has a unique blend of interdisciplinary experience that facilitates the successful execution of real estate capital markets transactions in the U.S. and around the world. We assist underwriters, issuers, lenders and investors in evaluating opportunities and in structuring and completing capital and finance transactions involving real estate companies and funds.

We are pioneers in the area of real estate capital markets. Specifically, our lawyers have initiated a number of structures and techniques, including the first two non-traded, publicly offered REITs with unique investor-friendly structures, the innovative “paper clip structure” utilized in the CapStar Hotel Company/American General Hospitality merger and the creation of the initial REIT unit investment trust. We also handled some of the first real estate limited partnership tender offers.

We serve the entire investment community as we advise on: fund formations; IPOs; public company mergers; roll-up transactions; equity and preferred equity offerings and placements; high-yield debt and convertible debt offerings and placements; senior and mezzanine financings; public and private tender offers; and joint ventures. The diversity of our practice also touches nearly every major asset class, including multifamily residential properties, lodging and gaming, retail, health care, industrial and office properties.
